• Save Christchurch Hospital Chapel
    It is important that the Chapel remains in site or re-built near to the new Macmillan Unit as it is used by many people. Please support my objection to the demolition of the Chapel, and the proposed replacement prayer room.

  • Support Sutherland Space Station against legal action by Wildlands
    I have run the SPUR support group since the Sutherland Space Port Project took roots. I have started this petition because this is extremely important for the future of our area. We have a massive problem with depopulation in Sutherland & Caithness . The real difficulty lies with lack of full time nonseasonal jobs to keep the young in the North. So the promise of up to 40 jobs created by this Space Port will be fantastic, especially if it attracts young professionals with families !! . It also will give autonomy to the local area with money to spend as we wish. Projects we would never be able to afford as things stand now, unless it was on Wildlands agenda!! The links to be set up between the SSP & schools & colleges - universities will be great for any children with interests in science . But most of all i absolutely believe that we should not be so heavily influenced by one land owner. In that unless the project suits his agenda he will throw his fortune behind a court case to stop it with no regard to local opinion or regard to best interest for our community . This is our home we should have the final say not an absentee land owner !! For generations Highlanders have been told what to do by rich land owners THIS HAS TO STOP we must take a stand . The SSP must go ahead for future generations & for those that have always wanted to come home !! So please, put your name to this petition & show the government & Mr Polvsen that we support the SSP.

  • Morning Lane People's Space: Save Hackney Central
    The developer's current proposal includes tower blocks of up to 19 storeys with over 500 housing units, NO council housing and only 20% of the units being "affordable" (such as shared ownership and other forms of housing which are unaffordable to most people in Hackney). The developer is focusing on the commercial and work space in the plan. But as they are behind the disastrous Fashion Hub, we doubt that these will meet local needs. In terms of housing, the overwhelming need in Hackney is for council housing at social rents. We call on Hackney Walk and Hackney Council to ensure that there is a minimum of 50% in any new development on this site. We also call on them to ensure that any development is based on broad and deep consultation with local people so that the development creates the shopping, services, employment opportunities and housing that are useful for them.

  • National Planning Policy MUST include the Climate Emergency
    Currenctly the Climate Crisis is specifically EXCLUDED from National Planning Policy. This means that a planning application e,g, an airport expansion, cannot be refused on the basis of its effects on greenhouse gas emissions etc.. Any current refusal on climate grounds can be appealed and waved through.

    The car park is essential for local shops and services to thrive and its management heavily impacts local residents and businesses. After a previous car park firms unsuccessful attempt at management of the Oastler Road car park, we in the local community are keen to have our say in the management a second time around.

  • Gravel Pitt (NW quadrant) car park additional entrances
    Poor access to the North West Quadrant car park at Derriford Hospital (otherwise known as the Gravel Pitt) is a growing issue. This large and well used car park has only one entrance for cars to gain access into it, as well as requiring swipe access. Each morning from approximately 7.30 and during peak travel times the volume of people trying to gain access to this car park creates so much traffic that cars are queued back and beyond the main Derriford roundabout, due to this cars then end up blocking the roundabout stopping all traffic including non-Derriford staff from accessing adjoining roads and so the whole of the local area starts to become gridlocked with cars all stemming back to the issue of staff queuing to get into the Gravel pit with one access point. Over the last 5 years Gravel Pitt has grown in size however no attempt has been made to create additional entrances for the increase in use of the car park and is now effecting not only the hospital site but the local plymouth community and its commuters. Can I ask that if this issue is a frustration to you and effects your morning commute to please sign this petition. Ann James (Derriford chief exec) and Saba (parking company) have been contacted on this issue. Local councillors have been contacted for their support on this matter. Hopefully this small change can make a difference to the local community.

  • STOP NEW OIL DRILLING IN PUDDLETOWN
    Across the globe and in the UK itself climate catastrophe is upon us. We are witnessing floods in the UK, reduction of productive farmlands, extreme weather events, uncontrollable fires, a rapid decline in plant and animal life in the UK and around the world. On May 16th 2019 the Dorset Council recognised a state of Climate Emergency: “We have an opportunity and an obligation to demonstrate leadership – thinking globally about the implications of climate change and acting locally to help address it in our communities.’’ Many councils and our parliament now recognise a state of Climate Emergency. But invariably business carries on as usual and CO2 is continuing to rise at a terrifying rate. This application, validated by Dorset Council, for drilling a new oil well is a prime example of this inability to grasp the reality we find ourselves in and to act accordingly. We demand that you stand by your stated obligation, show leadership and act locally to prevent the worst ravages of catastrophic climate change. Furthermore, this planning application directly contravenes the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF, Feb 2019) which states that “The purpose of the planning system is to contribute to the achievement of sustainable development…meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”. The environmental objective includes, “mitigating and adapting to climate change, including moving to a low carbon economy.” Therefore, this application is in direct breach of the NPPF. South Western Energy, Ltd, aspires to produce oil from the proposed well for at least 20 years. The oil would then be trucked with 8 articulated tankers a day from 9:00 to 17:00 to Fawley Oil Refinery, 50 miles away Please sign this petition and tell Dorset Council to abide by the NPPF, and to act on behalf of the environment and future generations. Do not approve this application. We must act now as we are witnessing ecosystems collapsing worldwide. We must get off fossil fuels and move to a low carbon economy. Dorset Council, you as our elected representatives, work for us. We demand that you stand by your own words, and Government policy. Do not hasten us to our own demise. Say NO to South Western Energy and drilling in Puddletown.

  • Northampton Market Square
    NBC has not given the people of Northampton the opportunity to say they do not like the plans put forward in their new consultation on the future of Northampton Market Square and have presented a fait accompli - this petition redresses the balance. Our Market Square is reputedly the largest and oldest enclosed market square in England. It has been in existence since 1235 and has been the centre of town life since then, with many locally and nationally important events taking place there. As such, it should not be changed and those events that took place in the square over its long history commemorated.

  • Save The Windmill - Weald's last remaining Pub
    The Windmill is the last of 7 pubs which once thrived in Weald. It is at the heart of the community and, along with the school, the shop and the church, is one of the four vital pillars of our village. However, the current owners and management are looking to move on, and so the pub is for sale again. According to research commissioned by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA), carried out by Oxford university: “People who have a local pub are happier, have more friends and feel more engaged with their local communities. Many pubs help provide space for the local people to meet, tackle loneliness, and strengthen the local community.” Further to this, the value of properties in Weald could diminish significantly 'with the loss of the pub. A recent study by online estate agent Tepilo found that a quarter of homebuyers like to be within walking distance of a pub, calling it a 'must' when buying their next home. Less than 5 years ago The Windmill was CAMRA's Kent Region Pub of the year and therefore we feel that there must be life left in this village life-line yet. If you agree please sign this petition to help protect it's status as a pub by applying to make it an Asset of Community Value

  • Stop Spelthorne Borough Council's Local Plan
    On 5th November 2019 Spelthorne Borough Council released details of its new Local Plan. It will affect YOU, YOUR children, YOUR family, YOUR friends, YOUR neighbours, YOUR community and YOUR borough for decades to come! Not knowing is dangerous and the decisions being made by the Council Leader and his cabinet of allies will negatively affect our borough for many years to come! Spelthorne’s Local Plan must withstand scrutiny and it’s up to every resident to challenge it. The consultation ends on 7th January 2020 and there are only 3 public events all in November and all within the same 7-day period. The Borough Bulletin, distributed to all residents the first week of December will only contain eight pages of Local Plan news and that's halfway through the consultation period. We want Spelthorne Borough Council to reschedule this consultation, be fully transparent and arrange more public events because every resident has the democratic right to participate, challenge, and respond to this invasive and disturbing plan. Please support our petition by adding your voice so Spelthorne Borough Council has no choice but to listen to the people they work for; it is unacceptable for the Council to act in such an inappropriate manner. The support of every resident is essential because it’s not their borough, “It’s Our Spelthorne” and we all have to protect it. https://www.itsourspelthorne.org.uk/ The Spelthorne Council Local Plan web page https://spelthorne.gov.uk/localplan The Local Plan Site Allocation documentation https://tinyurl.com/y67da5mm
